We all have dreams about what we'd like to do in our retirement, but these will remain dreams if we don't plan and prepare - and the earlier, the better. Golden Years: The Irish Guide to Planning Your Finances for Retirement will help you turn these dreams into reality.
While emphasising enjoyment, Declan Lyons takes a straightforward approach to financial planning for your later life. Everyone is different, with different potential needs, and so you have to create plans that suit you - and not just your financial institution. With clear and expert advice on strengthening your pension, buying property overseas, and continuing to work, Golden Years explores the steps you need to take to make sure you enjoy your later life to its maximum potential.
